With the escalators and elevators, I have always surrounded them either by a wall or shrub (just wall in the case of elevators). However, I have always wondered if this is the intention of the designers? I get the impression it is with the elevators given the nature of its opening (BTW, can that be removed on the floors where the elevator doesn’t stop if chosen that option??), but with escalators I feel like I see a 50/50 of either option when looking at other CEO’s screenshots. I guess I ultimately want to know if the way they are currently designed has proper barriers assumed to be there (i.e. is there a bannister-like barrier at the top, open end of escalators prevent people falling through, or do we need to design for that?) Would be helpful and let me know if I am wasting space in my designs.
Here’s a screenshot of a build I am working on. One escalator has walls because I am nestling it within the exit of my customs, and another is “open” on its top level. Is one the “proper” way? Thanks!
